Data is an important tool in the fight for equality. Information is captured about almost every element of our lives, tracking gender pay gaps, spatial injustice and institutional bias. Yet accessing this information can feel almost impossible to a newcomer: data acquisition, analysis, and visualisation can often require specialist skills.
In this hands-on workshop, leading data visualisation designer Stefanie Posavec demystifies data and its visualisation by getting back to basics, explaining how data can be found everywhere in our world and can be translated into visual form, and it doesn’t have to be inaccessible or intimidating.
Using simple drawing materials, you will learn the basic dataviz design process alongside tips on how to ensure your future visualisations are successful. The workshop will culminate in the creation of a visualisation of your personal data. Open to all: no data or drawing experience required!
